Ibn Sina: A Concise Life

Sale price$24.90 NZD

Ibn Sina, who is referred to as Avicenna in Latin, was a true polymath. Born in the tenth Century his passion for knowledge was unbound, and he made lasting contributions to medicine, maths and philosophy.

He served under princes and kings (and fled from them too), wrote books of philosophy that are still argued over today and set down medical treatments that continue in use. Ibn Sina is often referred to as one of the most brilliant Muslim thinkers of Islam’s Golden Age.

With illustrations, photographs, and maps, the rich and diverse world that produced Ibn Sina is vividly brought alive.
